Review of revision 4377426 [Passed][edit]

Implement WN:IAR and change photo?[edit]

I know that, per WN:Archive conventions, content should not be changed after more than 24 hours passed. However, I think either File:Francisco en la PUC (25879476708) - headshot.jpg or File:Francisco en la PUC (25879476708) - cropped.jpg is more suitable image than the 2014 one used in the article. Can WN:IAR be invoked to allow image change in the article? --George Ho (talk) 23:05, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

I am in favor of the change. What about you, @Pi zero:? ... Thanks, George Ho. I actually searched for such an image on Commons. Maybe it hadn't been categorized yet. Cheers, --SVTCobra 23:10, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
Truthfully, I don't think it would be appropriate. If we are especially dissatisfied with the image choice, that implies that the change would be especially substantive. --Pi zero (talk) 23:19, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
I think it lends to our credibility as news to have current photos rather than ancient file photos. It doesn't change any of the text of the article. Imho, it is not a substantive change. Actually, I think it is far less of a change than changing an infobox on a 10-year-old article. (I didn't look it up, but I think the 24 hour window is not in policy, but in guidelines or buried deep in archiving guidelines.) Cheers, --SVTCobra 23:31, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
My memory is that the 24-hour figure was settled on by a rather hefty consensus of veteran Wikinewsies, making it quite solid. The archival status of image choice is extremely well-established. --Pi zero (talk) 23:44, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
We aren't talking about the archive, though. Anyway, it would just be "cool" to have a photo from the actual trip to Chile. I am happy with the article either way. --SVTCobra 23:59, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
